Texas climbed to No. 4 in the AP Top 25 on Sunday after its 34-24 Week 2 victory over Alabama. The win marks the Longhorns' first foray into the top five since 2010 as the program seeks to turn a corner under third-year coach Steve Sarkisian before joining the SEC next season.

The 'Horns looked plenty ready for life in a new conference while handing the Crimson Tide their first regular season nonconference defeat since 2007, Nick Saban's first season leading Alabama. Amid the loss, the Crimson Tide dropped from No. 3 to No. 10.

This marks the first time since 2015 that the Crimson Tide have been ranked outside the top five at any point in September. In 2015, they rallied from a Week 3 loss against Ole Miss to win the SEC championship and College Football Playoff National Championship. If this year's team is going to follow a similar script, it must first address a struggling passing game and a defense that failed to produce a sack or turnover against the Longhorns.

Amid Alabama's tumble, Florida State rose to No. 3 and USC creeped up to No. 5. Eight Pac-12 teams made the poll as No. 24 UCLA and No. 23 Washington State each earned spots in the rankings for the first time this season.
